We’re proud to have published such fine work from such an array of talented writers this year. Congratulations to our 2014 Pushcart Prize nominees, the best of the best. We have our fingers crossed!
“Campfire SingAlongs for Opposite Orphans” by Catherine Carberry (IR 36.2)
“Boomerang” by Summer Wood (IR 36.1)
“With Fox” by Carol Guess & Kelly Magee (IR 36.1)
“Drilling for Lefse” by Matthew Gavin Frank (IR 36.2)
“History of Masculinity” by Phillip B. Williams (IR 36.1)
“Black Hole Observed Over Time” by Airea D. Matthews (IR 36.1)
I sincerely hope “Boomerang” gets the Pushcart. So many stories now on this subject, but this has a subtle, gentle yet powerful twist: the pain of the young and innocent still borne by the grown man, but yet, in spite of the tragedy and loss, ,one is happy he has found love.
